Women of Valor – The World of Sisterhood

Our Shul’s Sisterhood offers a variety of activities that will bring “sisterhood” and a deeper connection to our synagogue family. Throughout the year, Sisterhood has many events planned such as the ones found below for our entire congregation and community (mark your calendars to save these dates!). General program and meeting topic will be provided in the monthly Scribe, the weekly e-Scribe, the Rabbi’s updates, and through flyers available at the Shul and online.
